Start the essay early!
I got in by applying, and I regret going. I did well in high school, asked for great teacher recs, and really (really, really, really) focused on my essay.
It is also very helpful to visit MHC and do an interview!!!
I did well in HS- accepted to MHC, Smith, Wellesley, Brown, Yale, & Dartmouth. When it came down to choosing I decided on MHC based on my experience visiting the campus and speaking with current students and professors. 3 years later I am still extremely happy and confident with my decision! Wouldn't trade my time at MHC for anything!
